This story starts with the two donations for our 2nd apartment….a red couch and a dining room table and chairs. The couch and table were in perfect shape, but the chairs needed work. So Bob and I accepted the challenge and went to work. Mary took the seats off the chairs, washed the chairs with soap and water, and let them dry in the driveway. Then she painted the chairs a really dark charcoal and let them dry. Inside the house Bob was busy removing the old fabric and then recovering the chairs with a fabric that goes with the couch. The picture shows you the results. It took a good bit of time because there were 4 side chairs and 2 arm chairs. We love the result!
Needless to say, the next apartment will be decorated around the color red. Sounds like a happy place, yes??
